Apply for Financial Aid Now!

My article in today's Spartan Daily is about the proposed changes in Congress to change financial aid. The proposals would decrease the interest rates for student loans and would increase the maximum amount a student can receive each year in Pell Grants. Despite the headline, the proposals have passed the House of Representatives and is now before the Senate. If they pass there, they still have to signed by the President.

Working on the article motivated me to get going on applying for scholarships and other financial aid. If you, like me, have been putting it off, do it now. Even if you do not think you will qualify, you should apply anyway. The priority deadline for SJSU students to finish the FAFSA is March 2.
